UCK 441E - Flight Stability and Control

Course Objectives

• Aircraft flight stability and control is one of the basic necessary courses for teaching of an aeronautical engineering students.
• This subject is given to students after Aerodynamics, Flight Mechanics and
Automatic Control courses.
• Stability and control are among the most important aspects of the analysis and design of aircrafts.
• Analysis of flying and handling characteristics and successful design of automatic flight control systems.
